Logo Design & Branding

The right logo design is essential for any new business. A new logo design can also refresh and reinvigorate an old web design, without the need for a complete redesign.

If your logo design looks tired and dated, that’s what people will think about your company. Likewise if your logo was designed some time ago, it could be quite small or an awkward shape, or could look blurred when viewed on people’s high resolution devices on a new website.

It is said that you do not have a second chance to make a good first impression. Your logo is often the first design that potential customers see of our business, so you want the impression they get to be a good one.

The Benefits Of A New Website Design

Getting a new website built gives you a chance to overhaul many aspects of your online presence and to improve your online strategy.

The better and more up to date it appears, the more attractive it will be to the potential customers you are trying to attract. If your website is not up to date, then you risk losing potential visitors and customers because of its appearance.

Make your website faster

One of the more overlooked aspects of improving websites is bolstering the speed at which they load. The faster your website can download, the more confidence visitors having in the quality of your website. Conversely, the slower it downloads, the less likely they are to stay on your website. By speeding up the download process, you not only improve the brand of your site, but also the SEO aspects as well. Our web design team are well versed in building fast websites.

Make your website message more focused

The longer your online business exists, the more it will change and grow over time. You learn more about your customer base and what type of content will reach them. The most obvious benefit to improving your website is adding the latest features that best compliments your online business. While you do not have to add everything, it is important that your website look new and up to date.

Easier website content management

Content management is the cornerstone to the success of your website. But it is not only about adding or updating articles, product descriptions, and image captions. Improved management of your content means that you can do the updating yourself thanks to our use of WordPress. The WordPress platform is easy to use, making it a breeze for you to add, edit, or remove old content which helps improve the overall performance of your website.

Built in SEO

Search engine optimisation (SEO) is the heart of your passive marketing efforts. It is the shaping of the website itself so that it is built to attract those who are interested in the products or services that you offer. By infusing your website with proper SEO techniques, you can attract more people organically to your site. This means that potential customers are more likely to find you through search engines without you having to pay.

A chance to improve your branding

You can either improve or even change your brand to make it even more effective. This means updating the logo, modernising the appearance of the website, or making whatever changes needed to reflect your business. If you have seen traditional companies over the years update their brand, then you can see the advantages it has for your online business. Effective brand building is founded on creating an easy to navigate site that is modern and like-new in appearance.

Improving your Google profile

When you relaunch your website, you should make it as neat as possible which will improve your Google profile. By improving your Google profile, you provide yet another advantage in reaching potential customers who are looking for the products, services, or information that you have to offer. An improved Google profile also means that your website will get new attention that will help it branch out and become more stable.

Get rid of some of the clutter

The best websites have the information customers need to make a purchase and nothing else. There is no unnecessary information, graphics, images, or the like that might distract or otherwise turn them away from your website. By keeping it lean, you not only speed up the download of your site, you also help direct customers to where they want to go which results in more sales. Is your website easy to navigate? If not, then you are losing potential customers.

A chance to apply new market research

As you improve the search engine optimisation or SEO profile of your website, you now have the opportunity to bolster your market research efforts. This means better identifying the type of visitor that is most likely to purchase from your business. The result is that you get a more responsive customer base that purchases from your website again and again.

Making sure your website is fully mobile friendly

An up-to-date website is one that can be easily seen on computer, laptop, and mobile devices. With more people using smartphones and tablets to surf the web, having a responsive website that adapts to all sizes of screens is a must. This means that customers can view your website no matter their location or the device that they use. One of the most straightforward methods of improving customer engagement and greater interaction is to create a more user-friendly, easier to navigate website.
